Thank You Hartford!

On Sunday, July 28, 2019, Le Dîner en Blanc made its inaugural appearance in the City of Hartford with nearly 600 guests in attendance at the secret location of the Old State House. We literally shut down the City and streets of Hartford by closing both Central Row and State House Square.

New friendships were made, and old friends reunited. For many of our guests this was your first Dîner en Blanc. We're happy to hear through your amazing emails and messages that Dîner en Blanc was a wonderful experience. Thank you for participating in this momentous occasion. It truly makes all the hard work worth it! Your continued support makes Dîner en Blanc truly unique and unforgettable.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a special thank you to our partners, Brignole Vineyard, and to our caterers David Alan Hospitality Group and Max Catering and Events, for their huge contribution in making Le Dîner en Blanc a success.

Another special thank you to our wonderful Head Leaders: Chiwanda Irving and Tia Debrick; our fabulous Group Leaders: Carmen Correa, Carole Richards, Chereece Smith and Tisa Rabun and our 14 Table Leaders!

Also, thank you to Coursey & Company for helping us spread the word and having all of Hartford abuzz. Let’s not forget our fabulous deejay, Colin “DJ Deem” Smith, who kept the party going until the end.

See you next year friends!
